How Reliable is Dyno Tuning?

I have a 2013 5.0 with about 11,500 miles on it and have had a Brenspeed 91 tune on it for about 7000 of those miles and it has served me well in terms or being reliable. I "dog" on it pretty hard a lot and I have not had a single issue with it.

I am interested because I have an opportunity to bring it up to a dyno tomorrow and possibly get it tuned and I was just wondering how reliable would that be for a daily driver. I know those guys tend to max stuff out on the dyno and I don't really want that for a daily driver.

They can tune it how you want, just like the mail tunes do. Bigger concerns are, have they tuned a lot of mustangs? Are you unhappy with your current tune? Why fix what works great!

Reason I mention the first question is because a shop down the street from me is well known for tuning...but on cameros. They almost never tune mustangs and have admitted they don't know them very well. I would never take my car there for tuning.

A dyno tune is only as good as the tuner. If they had no experience with the copperhead PCM's then stay clear.

I'm actually switch to a dyno tune this Thursday from bama. Shop is well know as a mustang specialty shop so that's the main reason. Should get the cr running perfect.

+1... Be absolutely sure that the tuner knows what to do with these ecu's.

If nothing else, get your rear-wheel numbers and keep the current tune.
